Default As the dust settles. Who wins? Nt rpa or immaculate jumbo rpa

Now that the market is drying up and prices are setting in instead of fluctuating, which card you think is on top? If it was the exact same patch.

NAtional treasures rc Auto patch 2012/13 /199 or /99

Or

Immaculate rc jumbo patch 2012/13 /75 and some sp

I have to go with NT. And as u say, now that the dust settles, NT is panini's #1 product! Better than Immac and Flawless. This is coming from a Flawless/Immac collector too.

NT by 1000 miles....

Immaculate is no Flawless, and not even better than NT.

I was all for Immaculate until I got my redemptions and all of them for my pc guy are event used material. Still better looking imo but not a fan of event used material in a high end product

I'm probably in the minority, but I didn't like NT this year.

I'd take Flawless, then immaculate.

As someone who's ripped too many damn cases
Of each... It's flawless, immaculate and NT are basically a tie.

Immaculate

I would say nt is the worst of the three

Nt has actually been pretty weak from the start... Especially if u compare it to exquisite

Thank god panini came out with flawless and immac

U cant go wrong with flawless! But when it comes to RPA's its NT!
Immac is kind of a joke with all the Event worn stuff!
Premium products should always be Game worn
Ohh and dont get me started with the patch cuts on the tags and nameplates

Guys, I'm not comparing products. I'm comparing the Rc auto patch. So in the long run, which one will be the one that collectors MuST HAVE. Flawless doesn't really offer rpa except couple players like chandler parson, faried and lillard (Sticker auto) so flawless is not even in the conversation

NT as long as the RPAs are #'d to 99 or less.

A product that leans so heavily on stickers can't be #1. I'd say Flawless and Immaculate are number 1a and 1b. NT isn't really in the argument.

Hey man.... I think you already know what I think.... but we're in a day and age where a rookie card #/199 is too common to be a player's key card.... I think we passed that stage about 8-10 yrs ago.

I'd rather have the jumbo patch/auto out of immaculate if it just comes down to the two. Having said that, I think it's pretty clear that neither one of those is the KEY rookie card.

If it's all about RPAs then immaculate.

The stickers are just way too tacky. I'm starting to see it happen more and more. But a lot of people. Especially big spenders are ignoring and not collecting anything with sticker autos. When the dust settles years down the road on card autos will carry a huge premium over the stickered cards.

I'd say NT for the RPAs. Immac had so many versions of RC RPAs that I couldn't tell which was the real base. NT was straightforward:

/99 or /199, /25, /5, /1. Shved was, I think, the only short print here; unless Ivan Johnson never returned the cards to Panini as I haven't seen any redeemed card of his yet.

NT. I think it's an iconic set because it was Panini's first true high-end cards. Years down the road when people get nostalgic, they always think about the first.

It doesnt change its NT. Exquisite cards had some bad years but is king and will be this year and next as well.
